The Kameleon route goes past meadows and along the Sneekermeer. Along the way you’ll see a few mills and a bike ferry across the Nije Skou. The ferry link dates back to 1750. You can read more about it on the De Nije Skou tea room website. Please note: Both the ferry and the tea room operate from 1 April to 15 October, with opening hours from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm. Another highlight on the route is the Kameleondorp in Terherne, named after the books by the author Hotze de Roos with the twins Hielke and Sietse as the main characters.
